Iron Pyrite, distributed by Washington Mills, is prepared from carefully selected pure monocrystalic iron pyrites (FeS2).
Description of Iron Pyrite
Iron Pyrite consists of finely grained Pyrite crystal splinters, which increases the thermal conductivity, the tensile strength, and the porosity of resin-bonded grinding wheels and cut off wheels. Iron Pyrite improves durability and performance of organic bonded abrasives by reducing the temperature in the contact zone or the work piece and cut off / grinding wheel.
Applications of Iron Pyrite
Iron Pyrite is used as an active filler in hot and cold pressed grinding wheels, brake pads and brake linings, and friction applications to help increase thermal conductivity. Iron Pyrite can also help to balance the hardness and friction coefficient of brake pads. Iron Pyrite can be used alone or in combination with other active fillers in organic bonded abrasives.
